Firing Line with William F. Buckley: The Practical Limits of Liberalism


Published October 11, 1975


Description: In this episode of William F. Buckley's Firing Line television show, Jerry Brown and several journalists join Buckley.

Firing Line Program Catalog: Jerry Brown was Ronald Reagan's successor as governor; his father, Pat Brown, had been Reagan's predecessor. Governor Brown the younger would later become known as a flake, "Governor Moonbeam"; in this discussion, primarily of desegregation, he comes across as straightforward and well spoken. Brown: "I would leave this [busing] to the sound discretion of the judiciary, and see what happens." Buckley: "You wouldn't leave it to the unsound discretion of the judiciary?" Brown: "Well, that's a phrase that lawyers use. Whenever the word 'discretion' is used, you usually preface it with the word 'sound'-- and maybe that's more a hope than a description."

One of the best minds of his age.

Miles Gone By: A Literary Autobiography is his best book and captures the man the best. The Unmaking of a Mayor, about his run for NYC mayor, is also excellent, but sadly out of print.
